Drank at thirdeye11’s birthday party.
The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel malt, with some nice brown sugar qualities. The flavor is a bit different. I get some nice oak notes, as well as some toffee and rye. There is also a bit of dark cherry in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2014
Murky body without any head. Wood, red grapes, raisin, sour, pine and complex. Thick palate, very rich taste in every sip. Characterful, lactic like acidity and delicious malts. I truly like this one. Original and exceptional taste. (Bottle at Au Bon Coin) jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2014
22oz bottle in a tasting glass. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of strong caramel and toffee malts, a little oak and vanilla, and some light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. A pretty cool barley wine.

Amber with a cream head. Sherry, caramel, rye, alcohol and sticky. Chewy malts, rye, sweet, dried fruits, and light alcohol. jbruner (5448) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
BFM swing top versus Terrapin bomber, both from 2011. BFM pours a much darker brown, Terrapin a copper, both with minimal to no head or lacing. Aroma on the BFM is more intense, some roast and dark fruit, hint of vanilla. BFM has some sour notes on the tongue, acetic tartness, Terrapin is much more toward the barley wine, big caramel and vanilla. Terrapin is smoother, BFM is more complex. Definitely a cool beer.

A small taste from a friend (bottle) @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear deep chestnut with a low head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruits, alcohol and spices. Flavor is sweet and sour roasted malts, vinegar, dark fruits and some hops. Quite nice. Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle to taster. Nose is huge with caramel and sugar. Minimal booze and barrel character. Not much alcohol noticed. Pretty smooth and way better than expected. thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle at Erzbierschof, Wintherthur. Pours reddish brown with no head. Delicious sour fruit aroma with hints of marcipane. Some yoghurt. Really great. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2012
On tap at Brick Store Pub. Nose has a good dose of bourbon with some sweet malts in the background. Flavor has a bit of dark fruit and caramel alongside bourbon and a touch of vanilla. Quite smooth. Very nice.
